Hey, everybody! Spoiler alert: There will be no acknowledgment on this show that anything is wrong. How naive I was in 2018.

Awww yeah! This here's the business.
Avatar 8:19pm Little Danny:

I just recorded my scratchy copy of "Harlem Tango"! What a cool beat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm ultradamno:

That guitar sound is striking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

I guess it's a guitar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm mariano:

Now I'm wondering what the whiplash looked like. I mean, I think I get the basic idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm mariano:

Don't even want to think what the Phillie jerk is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

Isn’t this just a riff on Harlem Shuffle
  8:25pm Kevin-san:

a DJ'OMG mishap? you have my undivided attention
Avatar 8:25pm Little Danny:

Haha, mixing "Harlem Shuffle" with a chord or two from "Comin' Home Baby." Genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm ultradamno:

That jerk is going off
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm mariano:

Sounds like Harlem Shuffle for sure.
Avatar 8:25pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Mishap still to come....
Avatar 8:25pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Yeah, total Harlem Shuffle borrow!
  8:25pm hunkered oats:

Do the villager!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm mariano:

Should we try to predict the mishap? Or try to spot it when it happens?
Avatar 8:28pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Oh, you'll hear it, not to worry.
  8:29pm choggie:

according to Bobby Womack, Harlem is the capital of every ghetto town
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Matt from New Orleans:

The voices sounded like saxes

There you go, see? It's a two-way street, like vertual said.

Very Jewish dad thing to constantly remind us something will screw up… Eventually… Soon… Just wait… Hang on… Want something to eat? Soon…

Oh damn! Wash your records. Don’t touch your needles.

A ray of hope in a dismal blur of catastrophe.

Yeah, Little Danny: he played a Pat Boone song. ;)
  8:38pm choggie:

give that disc a whore's bath and slap her back on the turntable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

That was Jessie Hill on the dirty platter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm ultradamno:

It's a mishappening!
Avatar 8:39pm Little Danny:

Million dollar bloopers. Sometimes I wash my hands. Sometimes I don't but then I clean my records and I still feel like I've done my duty for society.
  8:39pm P-90:

Jewish Dad fetishized mishaps pale in significance to to-go Margaritas from the local.
  8:40pm P-90:

Just sayin
Avatar 8:40pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm chresti:

At first I thought you were going to wash the record while we wait.
  8:41pm sinner:

Shouts to Bama
Avatar 8:42pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I think what happened was it was unwashable. Washing didn't help. It was defective. Which was okay because I have like 15 unplayed copies of that record.
  8:42pm vertual:

disc washing liquid? You're soaking in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

Classic on the other side
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm ultradamno:

A patina, I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe one of the skeleton crew has the ability to dice and splice it into something new?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Folsom:

@MFW do you have one of those ultrasonic cleaners for the records? the ones where the label is protected.
  8:43pm ami ad:

My Jewish dad told me to keep on.
  8:44pm choggie:

sometimes it's just crap shellac
not unlike everything recorded on Casablanca records between 76 and 80
Avatar 8:44pm Little Danny:

I have more water damaged labels from the Gulf Coast than any other region. The film is real.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Matt from New Orleans:

Have you acquired the Womack version since this aired?
  8:44pm choggie:

Kiss albums sounded like crap and they didn't have to bad wax and a horrible producer
Avatar 8:45pm Mr. Fine Wine:

No, still no Womack. Never felt the need!
Avatar 8:46pm Mr. Fine Wine:

A lot of Chicago records I used to find...things on Mar-V-Lus etc....would have that visible film covering them that you'd need to wash off with soap and water and then they'd be mint underneath....like a protective coating! No, no ultrasonic cleaner. Soap and water!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm ultradamno:

Do you sing happy birthday twice when you do that?
Avatar 8:47pm Little Danny:

Oddly enough I've been on a real Hi Records kick of late. T-99, Quiet Elegance, Otis Clay, Joe L, Eddie McGee, Tony Ashley, Masqueraders, George Jackson. Tersest Willie Mitchell productions.
Avatar 8:48pm Little Danny:

Which is to say I loved that Syl Johnson
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Folsom:

A guy at work says he borrowed an ultrasonic cleaner, records rotated through the wash, he claimed it took off the film from the presser, sounded way better than before
Avatar 8:49pm JakeGould:

@MrFineWine: Wonder if someone in Chicago sold some spray sealant to record collectors as a way to preserve their 45s? I mean they preserved them… But can’t imagine what it was like immediately after they were sealed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm ultradamno:

Seems like a questionable idea. You want your vinyl nude
Avatar 8:50pm Little Danny:

Gorgeous! This Jones Bros. New to me.
Avatar 8:50pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I think it's just some weird industrial accident at a warehouse, Jake. But I'm not sure....Danny, yeah, Hi almost alone among labels has a SOUND that's unlike any other label's sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

One of my favorite Downtown Soulville-related memories is when Mr. Fine Wine DJ'ed a set of all Syl Johnson records at a private event with Syl Johnson in the audience, and I got to sit next to him and listen to him sing along to most of his discography.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Folsom:

I think that film is the agent used to release the vinyl from the press.
Avatar 8:51pm Mr. Fine Wine:

I didn't get to set next to him because I was busy DJing!
Avatar 8:52pm JakeGould:

@MrFineWine: True too. Badly cured plastics of all kind have some kind of gunk on the,
Avatar 8:52pm Little Danny:

Avatar 8:53pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Jennifer Fairoaks: Gates of Coney...that was from the message board when the show originally aired!!! I had no idea what you meant but just put it together!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm radioronan:

Syl is another national treasure. Hope he's inside and safe too. Thanks for the friday night cookin' kitchen edition, as always!
  8:54pm ami ad:

Someone at the round table in the fun factory said:A sealed vinyl doesn't sound like nothing,or something of the sorts.Viva wfmu.
Avatar 8:54pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Be safe, everybody. Sheesh, this show is going to end superearly because it started early...NEXT WEEK WITH ANY LUCK A BRAND-NEW SHOW!!
Avatar 8:54pm Little Danny:

Thanks (again) for the tunez maestro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Matt from New Orleans:

I remember listening to your fill in not long after on my bike ride down to the stomp that September
